Anatomical uterine element and functional components play a fundamental role in the enhancing of fertility are the major actors. Uterine pathologies, including congenital or acquired lesions, have been reported in 21 to 47% of patients undergoing in vitro fertilization cycles. Hysteroscopy is an important procedure in the study of one of the most important element of fertility: the uterus, even if its use in the world of infertility is discussed. There are many studies on safety and feasibility of the procedure and on patient compliance, but there is no consensus on its systemic use. This study, thanks to the wide literature about the use of hysteroscopic surgery to enhance fertility in most of the congenital and acquired problems affecting women in fertility age, allows defining that diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy is a rapid and safety technology to improve fertility.
